percent of people without power. we can't have a situation where... >> both the president and mitt romney are having to make difficult decisions in the days ahead amidst criticism he is cutting fema mr. romney refocused campaign events to serve as relief drive. >> part of the american spirit the american way to give to people who are in need. your generosity this morning touches my heart. i appreciate what you have done. >> now the impact that any of this is going to have, this election it's tough to say. look for a moment at the mass of power outages. look how many potential swing states are affected here. new hampshire, pennsylvania, north carolina, michigan, and of course ohio. >> ohio is the big one. >> 20 minutes before the hour. these planes will not be going anywhere any time soon. at least 18,000 flights canceled as three of the nation's busiest airports shut down for sandy. that is laguardia airport in new york. it looks like a beach doesn't it? >> used to be a runway. >> a crane hanging by a thread 65 stories above a busy new york street. coming up a crane expert says it could h
and mitt romney. both those campaigns. the president is leaving d.c. tonight before the weather worsens. and instead of tomorrow as first planned to get down to florida. mitt romney also having to change his itinerary. that's why we are going now to cnn's jim acosta always with the romney campaign and traveling with them. jim, the storm already having an impact on where you're going, isn't it? >> reporter: that is right, don. for the final nine days of the campaign, throw out the white dry erase board and perhaps take the doppler weather radar and lay it over the battleground map because that's how we track this campaign heading into the homestretch here. both campaigns, if you add them together of roughly a dozen campaign events so far between the president and mitt romney, mitt right now is heading to the gymnasium here in marion, ohio, with an event here tomorrow morning and then is getting out of the state. but, don, it will be very interesting to watch the final days of the campaign because of this storm. you saw the president also canceling events. not here in ohio, but his campai
the election day, president obama and mitt romney will both be hitting the final battleground states very, very hard. we've got a look at some new polling in a few of these states, "the wall street journal"/nbc/marist poll shows the president with a six-point lead over mitt romney in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin, and a very small two-point edge in new hampshire. i'm joined by mark preston live in washington. mark, there's been a lot of talk about the president's handling of hurricane sandy and how it might affect this race. we get a glimpse of what americans think about this handling in a new poll by abc/"washington post." 78% of voters approve of the president's response, 44% say they approve of mitt romney's reaction. neither candidate is seeking to politicize this were tragedy overtly. but it really does beg the question, how could this affect this race? >> it certainly puts the president in the position of being a commander in chief and being the leader at the time of a crisis. and in many ways, he's gotten a lot of support of one of mitt romney's top surrogates, and that's chris c
for both governor romney and congressman ryan on tuesday. governor romney believes this is a time for the nation's leaders to focus on those americans who are in harm's way. we will provide additional details with regarding governor romney's schedule when they are available. he also added my campaign will be run by the big oil companies. if i'm president you can expect a lot more of these kinds of storms over the next four years because i don't give a dam about climate change and the storms they produce. oh that was not part of the official statement. okay. and then of course leave it to fox news to say if romney's canceling events. that's fine. what a gentleman he is. what a terrific human being. if president obama is canceling events disarray. >> the president left for orlando. nothing has changed that much. does it show disarray or discontent within the obama election campaign where he comes down doesn't do anything, and then flies back. >> the president can be unpredictable. a lot of reason why they brought the president back was they didn't know how bad the weather would be i
. >> reporter: good morning to you, jenna. tomorrow both president obama and governor romney will be in or around columbus, ohio. a testament to how important the state is. he is here in virginia was built on a site of the old meadow farms where the great secretariat was born. i will help you make your own analogis. whoever wins the commonwealth will win it by a nose. the governor pressing hard on economy today. "fox news poll" showing him with a nine point ad vage over the president. with mr. obama on the campaign trail governor romney is sharpening the contrast with the president who is best to bring back prosperity for the nation. >> do you want the four more years like the last four years? >> no!. >> you want four more years where 23 million americans are struggling to have a good job? >> no!. >> you want four more years where earnings are going down every year? >> no!. >> you want four more years of trillion dollar deficits in washington? >> no!. >> reporter: governor romney drawing the sharp contrasts with government. do you want bigger government with stifling regulati
. ♪ >> tonight want to let you know we'll bring you a special inside look at both these candidates. mitt romney revealed: family, faith, and the road to power. that's coming your way at 8:00 tonight eastern. and it will be followed by "obama revealed: the man, the president." you will get to see both candidates behind the scenes like never before tonight on cnn. >>> quite a scare for the family of florida republican senator marco rubio. while the senator was out campaigning with mitt romney, his daughter was involved in an accident involving a golf cart. she is 12 years old. she's amanda rubio. apparently she was visiting classmates had this accident happened. we're told she suffered a head injury and was airlifted to miami children's hospital's pediatric unit. >> there was an accident with a tennis cart. she was transported to the hospital. many tests were done. she's doing better, she's talking. the whole family is next to her. and we hope that everything is going to be much better tomorrow. >>> hurricane sandy and the campaigns. brian monroe, cnnpolitics.com editor, joins me for more of the
nutter. thanks for coming inside "the war room." up next, president obama and mitt romney are both try hing to avoid politics this week. that doesn't mean politics won't find them. that story is next right here in "the war room." current tv encourages you to vote on november 6th but just as importantly to take the time to learn about each candidate's stance on the issues that matter to you. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. vote smart. our democracy depends on an informed electorate. i look at her, and i just want to give her everything. yeah you -- you know, everything can cost upwards of...[ whistles ] i did not want to think about that. relax, relax, relax. look at me, look at me. three words, dad -- e-trade financial consultants. so i can just go talk to 'em? just walk right in and talk to 'em. dude those guys are pros. they'll hook you up with a solid plan. they'll -- wa-- wa-- wait a minute. bobby? bobby! what are you doing, man? i'm speed dating!

. no motorcades there, folks. that means both romney, who is in ohio and iowa today, and the president will probably end up spending more of their time in the midwest than they had planned with possible stops in colorado and florida. second, barring problems with federal disaster response, the president is likely to have a messaging advantage, if you will, as he gets to run are the government. he does run the government. he is the president. he simply has to do his job. by comparison in the next four days, hurricane sandy will replace mitt romney, does he have momentum or not story as the lead of nearly every swing state newspaper and newscast. the lead story will not be something that goes along like today, romney took his message of change to fill in the blank. and finally, the storm could put a premium on mechanics. and while the romney campaign is certainly a lot better than john mccain's 2008 operation, the more this race focuses on mechanics, the better it is probably for the obama campaign. asked whether the storm could affect early voting, the president said that remains to be
has done to the campaign. both president obama and mitt romney altering their campaign schedules, of course. but there are two different positions. how does this play out? >> great coverage this morning. and i have to pause and say it's sobering to see the pictures, to think about all the people with kids who can't get to a shift they may need. and it's hard to talk clinically about the politics, but go ahead and put on the stethoscope here. and point out that the campaigns are not suspended, the campaigns have been going on, they're just having to be very ginger about how they navigate it. at the same time president obama yesterday was sending out an appeal to his campaign list for red cross donations, his campaign aides were on a conference call talking about how they're about to go up in ohio with an ad hammering romney. they also announce there as you were talking about they're going up in pennsylvania. the president has that automatic stage. we saw him acting there as commander in chief. mitt romney has to avoid looking like he's going for photo ops. looking like he's doing
campaign and the romney campaign. both have put a lot of bodies on the ground in these swing states. it is a really technologically sophisticated architecture for turning voters out. and one thing we're about to see is whose architecture is better. they have not led in an ohio poll in quite a while. they have not led in any of these nbc swing state polls, there are 32 of them according to twitter this morning. if their turnout model's better than obama's which seems unlikely from what i've heard, but if it is, that could change things. otherwise it's hard to see campaigning or another ad is going to do. people have heard it all by now. >> chuck, it's donny. obviously, we're all living through sandy. >> reporter: yes. >> you're in iowa or a wisconsin or an ohio swing voter, how does it play? >> reporter: you know, i think -- i'm guessing yesterday, seeing a roep aepublican and det working together. when you look at what i think has been a very effective closing message up until sandy happened, which was he was simply going to the -- wherever he was going, sometimes it was base counti
of the campaign. you know they both of them have been not totally sole on the notion that romney was going to win for most of the time. privately both -- >> is that what's happening? >> i think both of them are looking, to some extent, what comes next. i'm not saying they don't want governor romney to win this election but both skap ceptical his chances for a year and a half. governor christie, not taking anything away from -- i think he was genuinely star struck to be on marine one, but he needs to get re-elected. he has a tough re-election battle. you can't be on the wrong side of president obama in the disaster situation if you're going to win re-election in a blue state in a year from now when he has to run again. >> which, by the way -- >> the only way he can run in 2016 if is he wins again. politics are there. governor bush's politics are different. trying to get himself back into play after having been out for a long time, he's going to be a different hoe down for him and a different way to deal with republican base than the one that chris christie is in. different political paths. >> if m
for an "october surprise," a late- breaking development that requires both sides to recalibrate. this year, it's come in the form of a massive storm. . >> crowley: scrambled campaign plans whether they were in the area affected by the hurricane or not. republican challenger mitt romney went ahead and held a rally in avon lake, ohio, this morning but said everyone's thoughts should be with those in the storm's path. >> u.s. with full hearts and clear eyes can see what's happening across the country right now. and on the eastern coast of our nation, a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times. we face these kind of challenges before. as we have it's good to see how americans come together. this looks like another time when we need to come together all across the country, even here in ohio, and make sure that we give of our support to the people who need it. >> woodruff: romney planned an afternoon event in iowa before suspending his schedule tonight when the hurricane is is coming ashore. instead, his campaign loaded emergency supplies on to the romney bus in virginia to deliver to st
're feeding information to both the obama and romney campaigns. and they have supplied voter data to every u.s. president since reagan. but this election is different. today digital tenology has given campaigns the ability to te that da and target voters with a precision never before possible. says aristotle ceo john phillips. >> we've been targeting voters for a long time, campaigns have been. what's different about it now? >> a couple of things that have changed. 2012 is a watershed year. what's changed is that the campaigns have found that by using powerful computers and sophisticated software that they are able to quickly sift through these mountains of data and slice and dice the electorate to break down that mass of voters to just the people you want to reach and talk to them about something that is relevant. the magic of the big data is the one-to-one targeting. >> reporter: how is the targeting a guy like me? i'm a ridgesterred independent in a battle ground state. >> it starts with the registered voter. the d.n.a. of the electorate. >> reporter: your name, address, gender, race. tha
, to offer housing, medical and property assistance after both natural and man-made disasters. mitt romney suddenly yearned for that very thing after refusing to answer whether he favors doing away with fema 14 times, his campaign spun this answer. quote, i believe that fema plays a key role in working with states and localities to prepare for and respond to natural disasters. as president, i will make sure that the fema has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission. that's different from what he said during a debate. >> some people say do it on a case by case basis but some people say maybe we're learning the lesson here, that states should take on more of that role. >> absolutely. every time you have an occasion and take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> in the wake of sandy, it seems those against fema's future may be having a change of heart. what do you think? is fema necessary? facebook.com/carolcnn. facebook.com/carolcnn. your re
residents with their compassion. >> (poor audio) >> i just want everybody to get help. >> now both president obama and mitt romney will be back on the campaign trail with five days left until the election. doug luzader is live for us. >> those are tough images. these are the latest poll numbers coming out from fox. the race tied up 46 a piece. that tightens slightly even earlier this month. the obama team is hoping that images we saw yesterday with the president acting as commander-in-chief will help boost those numbers. >>> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state an local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >>> the president will be back on the campaign trail in nevada and wisconsin. mitt romney will be in virginia at the rally yesterday in florida balancing his push for early voters during the poll of storm relief. >> please make sure you go out and vote early. if you have a dollar extra send it to the red cross for our friends that are in harm's way. i love you and i appreciate it and together we we are goi
it throws both campaigns off a bit but it throws mitt romney off more because he has less opportunity now to get his message out because people are preoccupied with this huge weather event. >> richard, the most campaigns are frozen. >> yep. >> who loses the most? cynthia says it's romney. what do you say? >> look, i don't think either of them planned for this. certainly in terms of the romney campaign, early voting takes some impact but in virginia it's not the same rules. in florida there's not that much impact at all. so i don't know that it's that much of an interruption but in terms of the optics of it, you know, when you're a challenger, you don't have anything to do except campaign nour flying around and when you do so you look more commanding and presidential. so i think it's a benefit for a president as long as the response actually works. if it doesn't work, you've got a whole other situation going on in your hands. if we carry on this track, the president is in a slightly better position but we'll be back to this in a very short amount of time. >> yes. and as one who lives in ne
both carriker in much about the military and our troops. i want to make clear to you that mitt romney will do everything, and provide everything that is needed to the united states armed forces to make sure they have everything they need when deployed overseas. host: on twitter, they want to respond to one of our callers. they did say it was an act of terror. mitt romney's precise comment in a recent debate was false. obama did describe the events as an act of terror twice. some officials of the obama administration suggested that the united states had no indication that it was a planned assault. did you have any response to that? guest: i would point out that, several times the obama situation pointed to it being a protest that got out of hand. i do believe that the white house was not straight forward with the american people from the beginning. host: florida, on our independent line. caller: question to the chair person -- and why did the candidates go into the michigan or ohio area and to make a statement about relocating to china? and never retracted the statement or put out anyt
messages so far, both attacking governor romney. we'll debate what and who is behind these messages, right after this break. >> i have four generations of family on this earth and my life has been very blessed, and if the republicans steal this election i'm going to track down mitt romney and give him -- megyn: fox news alert on a little bit of good news for the more than 9 million people commuting in and out of new york city. the governor just announced there will be some limited service on the two commuter rail systems in and out much new york later today. but officials are estimating full service will not be fully restored for weeks if not months. and this could have a big impact even beyond the borders of the big apple. trace gallagher is live with the update. >> reporter: nobody knows which service will come online tomorrow or the day after. in the tristate area people use this every day. the transportation authority said of the 5,000 square miles they cover, not a single corner went untouched. 36 hours after the floodwaters came into the subway stations, the floodwaters remain. the e
bureau chief susan page. maureen dowd writes this this morning, quote, while romney campaigns in florida yesterday, christie and obama plan to tour storm damage in new jersey. a picture of bipartisanship, putting distressed people above ki dirt-slinging politics and that's a grand bargain for both of them. susan, is this politically perhaps better than campaigning for the president? >> of course we're not saying that's the reason that this is happening with the president and governor christie, but i think it's probably good politics for both of them. it shows the president helping americans at a time in need. it shows the federal government doing something to help people. that's an argument that he's been trying to make with voters general low. and, you know, chris christie may well face a re-election fight next year for governor against newark mayor cory booker. it's probably helpful for governor christie as well. the only person it's not helpful for is maybe governor romney to have one of his chief surrogates out there touring today with the president. >> somebody we should remind peop
.com. >>> with just six days to go, both campaigns are showing their last-minute strategy. the romney campaign trying to expand the election map, targeting three reliably democratic states, michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania. and while both sides are now running ads in these states, senior obama campaign adviser david axelrod said the romney strategy amounts to a hail mary pass from a campaign running out of routes to 2 sgle70. >> i will come on "morning joe" and shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three straiates. >> let's bring in robert tram. that was pretty good, right? >> i'm not going to make that bet for my hair. let me put it that way. >> you're not going to shave your head? >> no. >> robert, is this a hail mary pass? in the swing state polls the president is winning or tied with mitt romney in florida, virginia, ohio. >> well, what it is, it's a head game. what the romney campaign is doing because they're flush with cash, they're spending money in these states to play a little bit of offense here so that the obama campaign can kind of say oh, my goodness, they're spendin
? this is questions we hope to get to austan and doug, both of them as we watch mitt romney take to the stage in wisconsin. should mention a busy day for mitt romney. a little later on today he has another rally. he will be joined by big names in the republican party. condoleezza rice for example will be with him. bobby jindal, marco rubio, lindsey graham. they will all be at a rally tonight in ohio. first in wisconsin, the speech by mitt romney that his campaign is calling his closing argument for him four days before election day. let's take a listen. >> four more days! four more days!. >> thank you so much. you got that one right by the way, you have got that absolutely right, four more days. this is a, oh, great experience to be here with you today. this is so exciting. [cheering]. what a great state, what a great welcome. by the way this state will help me become the next president of the united states. [cheers and applause] i want to thank, i want to thank governor walker for that extraordinary introduction. what a great governor you have here. you're very lucky. that took some work. [c
. it will not shake things up. this number allows both candidates to continue their talking points. romney saying this is not strong enough and president obama is not capable of fixing the economy, and he is, and it is time for a change and president obama saying we are looking at steady job growth, and we are headed in the right direction. people are starting to tune the jobs reports out. they do not affect the polls in september or october. >>shepard: was that something that would drive you, but if you are about jobs is how you feel about jobs. do i have a job where i am upwardly mobile or my kid? >>guest: it is like that. if you think president obama stewardship is a failure, and you will are voting for mitt romney you decided that a whiling ago. if you are decided on president obama, you are looking at a new normal, if rebound is the president on wednesday morning he defies history with the highest unemployment since fdr and he will have successfully made the case this is a new kind of growth slow and steady out of a bubble economy, a new normal, and i don't know that will happen but that wou
learn a lot about campaigns and what's moving by both sides. clearly, when mitt romney runs a g-bad like that, it is clearly false. he knows the auto industry is clearly hurting him and he has to go on offense. this goes to jonathan's point. we know the auto bailout is a big issue in ohio because of mitt romney's ads. the problem for him is that it's a challenge to do a demonstrably false ad. there is a negative consequence to this. when you do an ad like this, you get days and days of newspapers attacking you. >> pinocchio stands on fire, all of that thing. >> you have cleveland and cincinnati papers, front page articles saying he is not telling the truth about this. it has been a high-risk strategy. i don't know if ohio has gone from 3 to 6 as the polls seem to indicate. i think the risk he took in being dishonest bawas a bad ris for him to take. >> what is it that you are hearing personally on the ground in the midwest right now? >> well, you know, you talk to people and, you know, again, i think it is a question of who they think will stand up for them? they look at a guy like mitt r
months to take a look at governor romney's campaign. even going back to the 2008 cycle, both senator obama at the time as well as governor romney coming through iowa. spending time with the editorial board. we've talked with the candidates, we've explored and scrutinized the platforms and their various positions. are there endorsements that matter, i think it do. it's part of our tradition. we take very seriousing, first in the nation status of caucus state. we take serious able to vet candidates. many of whom really not on the national radar screen until after they emerge from iowa. it's a place where you have formal interviews, formal meetings inquestions and answers and issues and campaigns. as well as very informal opportunity to sit down to talk about what's in front of us in terms of americans. what are the different positions for that. i do think our endorsement matters. we proudly spent a lot of time very diligent, very thoughtful and all of our conversations particularly the final one to make the decision to support governor romney. >> we talking to rick green the editor of
that mitt romney can work with both parties. he's not just going to pander to republicans. he will get something done because he know us how to work with democrats having been a republican governor of the state of massachusetts. this country's electoral makeup is not likely to be one party rule after november 6. we need somebody who can work across the aisle. do we have any reason to believe barack obama will work better across the aisle when he doesn't face reelection? >> no, he has been a disaster in the first term. mitt romney has a record of working across the aisle because he was forced to in order to get anything done in the deeply blue state of massachusetts. an was very successful in doing it. mitt romney is a bottom line guy. if you you have a problem, solve it. he will figure out ways to be conciliatory without compromising principle. he has don't before an do it again. these newspapers understand what the problem is. mitt romney will rule out of reality not ideology. megyn: does barack obama have any history of working across the aisle? he got hit by a lot of folks after he
romney canceled campaign events in the key states of virginia and new hampshire. darren gersh tonight looks at the impact with election day one week away. >> reporter: both campaigns say they have stopped fundraising and campaigning in states in sandy's path. governor romney was still looking for votes today in ohio, iowa and wisconsin, but his campaign says he will stay away from the key swing states of virginia and new hampshire to let emergency workers there focus on the storm. both candidates say this is a time for the nation to come together. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families, and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. >> i would like to ask you who are here today to think about making a contrutioto the red cross or another relief agey, to be of help if you possibly can in any way you can imagine to help those in harm's way. >> reporter: not only has sandy charted an expensive
